Carrie finds out that Big is leaving New York and tries to have a romantic goodbye evening with him. But when Miranda goes into labor, Carrie has to leave to meet Miranda at the hospital. At the hospital, Miranda doesn't yet feel maternal, and can't work up the motivation to push. Meanwhile, Charlotte decides it's time to start dating again, and Samantha comes up with a plan to catch Richard cheating.
The closing frame of the episode read:
Dedicated to our city of New York...
then, now and forever.
This was filmed due to 9/11 attacks
Charlotte: Miranda has a son!
Samantha: Just what the world needs: another man.
Carrie: Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away.
Samantha: I'm always surprised when anyone leaves New York. I mean, where do they go?
Miranda: The real world?
Samantha: A homeless man showed me his dick on the way here. It doesn't get any realer than that.
